DQ, as usual you are right on target. It is a crying shame that more people don't see what is happening. The powers that be (i.e., medical bureaucrats) failed miserably in their first attempt to ban colloidal silver back in 1999, chiefly because of the firestorm of public protest that was unleashed when they published their intentions to ban it in the Federal Register. Few topics generated such heated public response to the FDA as the proposed ban on colloidal silver.
Since that time they have figured out that they have to be more subtle (actually, more subtil, i.e., sneaky) in their approach if they are to ever get their ban on colloidal silver through. So now they are now using emotionally-laden corporate propaganda tactics. They know they have to reach people emotionally in order to scare them away from colloidal silver, so that once they propose to ban it again, there won't be so much resistance to the idea from the general public.
Several years back the various shills for the medical bureaucrats started pushing the story of the Montana "blue man," Stan Jones -- even going so far as to doctor photos of him to look blue, when in reality he merely had some small patches of skin greying on his face and under his fingernails at the time. You can read an interview with Mr. Jones on my web site (www.TheSilverEdge.com) which we conducted with him several years ago. Just click on the link "Interview With a Blue Man."
Then the shills started posting photos of argyria victims on certain medical web sites on the internet, and purposely cut the eyes out of the people in the photos so that the argyria victims looked a hundred times more ghastly than they otherwise would have.
There was absolutely no reason to doctor those photos by cutting out the people's eyes except that it made them look like they came right out of some horrific zombie movie. It increased the emotional impact of the photos by a hundred fold. If they had wanted to simply preserve the personal privacy of the argyria victims in the photos, they could have easily used the traditional black bar across the eyes, or used pixelation on the face to hide the people's identities. But instead, they did what had the most emotional impact on the viewers of those photos. Tactics like this are right out of the "how to manipulate the public" propaganda handbooks.
And so, today on mainstream internet sites such as the Yahoo "Ask" pages, and many others, you can see people linking to those scary-looking photos of argyria victims, while posting wild warnings about the "dangers" of using colloidal silver.
Now they have the new "blue man," Paul Karass. He's an affable fellow. And it is certainly very cool the way he continues to advocate colloidal silver. But it is also clear the corporate media is using him to promote the idea that colloidal silver usage is dangerous, will "turn you blue," and only "kooky" people like Paul would ever dare risk using it, much less continuing to use it after they turn blue from it.
Did you notice that in every single television interview the host inevitably leads Paul to talk about his life-long tendency toward reclusiveness? This is very purposeful. It is an emotion-based public relations propaganda tactic designed to impact the public psyche. It is like the "lone nut" killers they always trot out for public consumption when there are assasination attempts against major public figures, such as the JFK assasination. By constantly harping on Paul Karason's lifelong "reclusiveness" the general public is left with the impression that only kooky "recluses" use things like colloidal silver, and they get what they deserve for not joining in with the multitudes and trusting in mainstream medicine.
And of course, the television hosts never mention the fact that there has never been a recorded death or serious injury or even a serious adverse event from colloidal silver usage, other than the half dozen or so people every few decades who take it in excessive amounts and stain their skin. And they certainly won't tell the public that in contrast, over 120,000 people a year are flat out killed by mainstream medicine's prescription drugs, and hundreds of thousands more are injured or suffer from serious adverse events (i.e., side effects), oftentimes permanently.
The entire idea behind the "blue man" propaganda saturation campaign is to leave the public believing that mainstream medicine is for "normal" people and is always good for you, whereas natural health is for "nuts," "kooks" and "recluses," and will ultimately hurt you. They know they have to scare people away from even trying natural health remedies, if they are to stop the growing exodus of people from mainstream medicine. And to do so, they must portray natural health advocates as "nutty" and "kooky" and "reclusive." And so they use these emotional P.R. and propaganda tactics, because they work better than raw force (i.e., such as outright product bans) which always triggers public resistance and resentment.
Ultimately, however, the colloidal silver ban will come. They are just softening up the public, first. They are reducing resistance to a ban on colloidal silver, by portraying it as a substance only mentally challenged "lone nuts" would partake of.
Right now, Health Canada (the Canadian version of the FDA) is sending out public warnings about commercially sold colloidal silver products, and actively soliciting "adverse events" reports on colloidal silver from the public. This means two things: One, they don't have any significant adverse events reports on colloidal silver in their files, so they have to actively solicit them. Two, once they have compiled some "adverse events" reports, they are planning on using them. In short, they are planning a ban on colloidal silver, and are trying to amass the "evidence" they need in support of a ban, in advance.
Of course, under normal circumstances product bans are usually the result of "adverse events" reports that come in spontaneously and unsolicited from the public over a period of time. These reports are then investigated, and if there is evidence that the substance in question poses a danger to the public, then action is taken against that substance. But in this case the medical bureaucrats in Canada have no significant evidence against colloidal silver. So they are actually prodding the public to provide them with some.
And as you know, here in the U.S. the medical bureaucrats are going after our good friends over at Utopia Silver, trying to set them up and use them as a test case in order to go after other colloidal silver vendors later. This is called "setting up a precedent," and it is almost always the harbinger of additional bureaucratic harassment and legal manuevering to come.
The bottom line is that colloidal silver is once again under attack. Only this time, it is from a completely different angle than the outright strong-arm attempt to ban it in 1999. This time they are using a combination of long-term emotional public relations and propaganda tactics combined with seemingly unrelated "enforcement" actions.
My personal belief is that ultimately, this all has to do with the Codex Alimentarius process of globally "harmonizing" bureaucratic regulations concerning nutritional supplements, as well as with the coming so-called "North American Union" in which the economies and laws of Canada and the U.S. are to be merged, followed by Mexico, then Central and South America, until the corporate globalists have achieved a complete economic "Union of the Americas" that can compete with the European Union.
I know it is difficult for most people to widen their views and see things from a larger global perspective. Most people are too caught up in their daily personal lives, or in trying to figure out who is going to lose in the next episode of American Idol, to see the bigger picture. But the corporate globalists -- including the big international drug companies -- want complete control over your personal health and medical choices. And they are taking it, one step at a time.
I've stated this before, but it bears repeating: Only ten short years ago, when I used to attend the big health shows in major cities where all of the natural health companies came together to display their wares, most of the companies who came were run by former hippies, or herbalists, or were little "mom and pop" natural health care operations, or were otherwise really laid-back individuals who had a sincere interest in promoting natural health as a means of changing the world for the better. Today, when I attend these same big health shows, they are filled with nothing but corporate suits and stuffed shirts. I'd wager that half of the companies displaying their wares at these big "natural health" events are subsidiaries of the major drug companies. The old-timers, and the mom-and-poppers, and the sincere "Dr. Christopher" herbalist types are all being squeezed out of the picture. Soon, the very people responsible for todays institutional medical nightmare are going to be responsible for your natural health care choices, too. And you will only be able to get what they want to offer you. And they won't offer you anything that competes with their pharmaceutical industry "upline."
Okay. Enough ranting. The handwriting is already on the wall for those who care to see it. My personal goal is to help put the means of colloidal silver production into the hands of as many American families as possible, before commercially sold colloidal silver preparations are banned altogether. And believe me, that ban is coming. But once you own the means of colloidal silver production, the medical bureaucrats can never take colloidal silver away from you. You can make all you want, any time you want, for just pennies per quart. In fact, you can make it so cheaply, you can literally afford to give it away to people around you who may be in need, such as friends, family members, co-workers, members of your church or fellowship, etc.
That's why I urge everybody to own a colloidal silver generator, whether you buy one from my company (www.TheSilverEdge.com) or from someone else's. Just do yourself a favor, and get one. As Dr. Bob Beck used to say, the only way to "take back your health" is to own the means of production. That's why he invented so many self-treatment devices. Same with Hulda Clark. Once you own the means to protect your health, you are no longer completely dependent upon the whims of the medical bureaucrats who can ban any substance, at just about any time.
DQ, you mentioned one of my posts being altered and then labeled "quackery spam." If you know where this is, please drop me an email and send me a link to the site page. I'd appreciate it.
